Center section: 3.4 hours

Finished riveting the center section except for the 470’s across the top.
Have to make spacers for both halves and procure bolts to join the bulkheads for proper alignment. Another trip to Ace Hardware!

Just a heads up do not use the Vans method of using wood spacers. Trust me you will end up short. I have to remove rivets on the forward flange because they measure 1.38″. I’m planning on removing no more than five rivets each side to get the proper spacing. My spars are 1.45″ thick so I made spacers out of thick aluminum angle at 1.46″. Hopefully this will work out well.
